  • How can I use my badge or certificate?

    Your use of your badge and certificate is intended only for the personal use of the individual person who passed the exam; it can't be used to represent that a school or company is certified. That is, a school or company can't represent itself as certified-only those individual persons who have passed the exam can represent themselves as certified. Your use of the Google certification logo is subject to Google's then-current Brand Feature Guidelines

  • What happens if I violate a policy?

    If Google discovers that you're in violation of any policy, Google, in its sole discretion, can revoke any of your Google for Education certifications and you'll be permanently barred from retaking any Google for Education exam.
